When you work with Fort, you’ll always be working directly with Tim Bowerbank, benefitting from Tim’s 20+ years of frontline marketing, creativity and coding experience.
My core skills include:
I am a trained and experienced marketing professional: graduating from a Business degree (with a marketing focus) in 1995. Since then I’ve supported a large range of businesses to achieve their goals and move their businesses forward. Applying theories to solve real-world business issues is something that I really enjoy and so you’ll benefit from an approach that is centred on best-practice when I work with you.
I also have a love of coding. Since the year 2000 I have been closely involved in either creating myself or the supervision of digital applications from websites to virtual learning platforms that reach thousands of people to support their needs. This technical expertise plus best practice marketing is a powerful combination in supporting your business in today’s digitally aligned markets.
The coding languages, frameworks and APIs I work with include:
- ActionScript 3: Object oriented coding of web and native tablet and phone applications, using Adobe Air and the Starling and Feathers frameworks
- HTML, CSS, Sass: for front-end websites and applications, using the Bootstrap framework
- PHP: in the context of bespoke WordPress content management systems
- CMSs (Content Management Systems): WordPress, Grav, Jekyll with CloudCannon
I am able to creatively develop messages, write copy, and design (print and digital) for the needs of your business. Experienced in the use of the Adobe Creative Suite of software tools including: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Animate, TexturePacker and Acrobat Pro.
Search Engine Optimization Expertise
SEO has been at the heart of all web projects I have worked on and I have taken sites from zero visitors to thousands each day through effective ranking in organic searches.
Since 2005 I have been mentoring marine businesses, additionally I have also written and taught courses through my previous role as a marketing manager.
